Blame it on Pope Francis & my Glock


  • The FBI QIT target is 285 square inches.
  • The 3.5 inch radius foam dessert plates above are 38.5 square inches.
  • The foam dessert plates are fully 7.4 times smaller than the FBI targets.

Distances are 3, 5, 7, 15, 25 yards for the FBI course.

At 7 yards there are three targets 3 yards apart each for the pre-2001 FAM TPC.

After the trip to Rome my percentages dropped to the 70s for both courses. I blame it on Pope Francis for making me go to Rome for so long and get out of practice. ;-)

Or I could blame it on the targets 7.4 times smaller than regulation.

Or I could blame it on the Glock, which needs to get some work done on it down in Smyrna. I’m due for a wee chat at the State Department in Atlanta, just a stone’s throw from Sacred Heart church downtown. Maybe I can get both done at the same time.

The Glock doesn’t load, doesn’t eject, doesn’t fire, is all “grindy, just a mess altogether. Yeah, forget Pope Francis; those low scores are the Glock’s fault.

    Excuse me, Father. I do not wish to be rude, but I believe you mean “dessert” plates. I.E. plates used to serve cake and pie and such delights. If I am in error, I apologize.

    A wee chat? The state department wants to debrief you on the missionaries of mercy? Or perhaps your glock?
